Paphiopedilum venustum album

I don't have many Paphiopedilums, but they are all in bloom or coming into bloom including this first bloom seedling of Paphiopedilum venustum var. album.  I've included a picture of the normal variety for comparison, and it is obvious that this variety has not of the purple and red coloration of the other variety.  It is a small plant with beautifully mottled foliage, though the foliage has none of the purple coloration either, and it is from Bangladesh, India and Nepal.

  1. The Album var. is really pretty... Very bold color patterns. Wonderfully photographed!

    1. Thanks, Fizzie. I prefer the album to the other, though they're both nice.
